Civil Rights Roots – Today’s guest is Dr. William Turner who has made a huge contribution to our understanding of the rich African American history of Southern Appalachia.  He discusses the region’s largely unheralded contribution to the civil rights movement and connects these roots to the rising tide for racial justice in America.
